Columbia University hires convicted terrorist as professor.

Although we’re in a bit of a pickle, here.

Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin — who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard — now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work, The Post has learned.

On the one hand, Boudin went through the penal system and came out the other side; like it or not, the rules now say that she’s a free woman. On the other hand, I am not entirely convinced that her remorse is genuine: read this and you might be forgiven for thinking that the woman was involved in a robbery gone bad, and not an act of revolutionary violence committed by two domestic terrorist organizations. And on the gripping hand… this issue could have been avoided if we had just hanged domestic terrorists back then, you know.  I mean, I’m sure that Timothy McVeigh might have gotten into library management or something if we had given him the chance, but we rightly decided to give him the needle instead…
